The Divine Comedy

The Divine Comedy return to Cork Opera House.
Tuesday 8 October 2019

8pm
€41 & €46*

Neil Hannon, one of the country’s foremost songwriters, is celebrating the release of a wonderful new Divine Comedy album ‘Office Politics’ at Cork Opera House on Tuesday 8th October.

Due for release on June 7th, Office Politics is the follow-up to the acclaimed top ten 2016 album Foreverland.

Office Politics is a 16 track tour de force full of inventive, timeless music peopled with a typically irreverent cast of characters. “It has synthesizers. And songs about synthesizers,” Neil says. “But don’t panic. It also has guitars, orchestras, accordions, and songs about love and greed.” But Office Politics’ central characters are the machines. Or Infernal Machines as one track rages.

“I do try to make normal records,” Neil says with a smile. ”But it always seems to wander off into odd territories.”

And for that we should be thankful.
